All drawings should be on card (max 10.5 x 14.8cms), with free, postcard sized boards now available for collection from the Eastgate Theatre. Just return the completed drawing to the theatre by Friday 11 August 2017 to be part of the Big, Big Peebles Draw challenge.
The postcard drawings will then be exhibited at the Eastgate Theatre during this year’s Creative Peebles Festival from Monday 14 August until Friday 8 September, after which three of them, chosen by the public, will each be awarded an art prize.
During the exhibition, visitors will also be invited to bid to buy their favourite pieces with the results of the silent auction revealed by the Eastgate on Sunday 3 September (the final day of this year’s festival). All proceeds from the auction will go towards developing the festival in 2018.
Held from 24 August to 3 September, the Peebles Creative Festival (formerly Peebles Arts Festival) sees this small but incredibly creative town celebrate the work of its many artists, art groups, musicians, poets, film makers, craftspeople and more. As well as indoor performances and workshops, the festival also offers opportunities for locals and visitors alike to explore the fascinating history, architecture, nature and landscape of Peebles through a series of talks, walks and tours.
